FOLLOWING the success of last summer’s Active in the Park free group exercise sessions, the City of Melville is launching a new spring season with a bigger timetable and a new class for toddlers.

Starting in October, classes will run from a number of the City’s parks and are open to all age groups and levels of fitness.

Five different class types will run until mid-December, including sessions for toddlers, children, teens, adults and seniors.

Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said the free classes gave everyone an opportunity to join in a supervised group exercise session.

“Classes begin just after Mental Health Week (October 8 to 15), and what better way to stay mentally healthy than getting out into a beautiful park and getting active alongside friends and fellow residents,” he said.

“An exciting addition to this season’s timetable is the new Tunes for Tots at Deep Water Point, which lets little ones listen to their favourite songs and learn some new moves to go with the tunes.”

Sessions are facilitated by qualified trainers and instructors from the City’s LeisureFit centres as part of the Healthy Melville initiative, a program designed to support the community to lead healthy and active lifestyles.

Classes begin on Monday, October 17. For more information and to register for a class, visit www.melvillecity.com.au/active.
